Paternity DNA Testing, how is it done?

Patient: How can I get a dna test after the baby?

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your questions. DNA or paternity testing is commonly performed by taking a swabbing sample from the inside of the cheek of the infant and the potential father or relative, and these samples are sent to a lab. These samples contain DNA which is sequenced and compared for potential paternity or biological relation.Thank you for choosing Askthedoctor.com
